JT SplatMaster Review

With Christmas right around the corner I thought I would start looking around to find the MUST HAVES for Christmas 2012.  The first item I found was The Sparkle Box book and it was a great book for any age.  The next big and Fun item I found is the JT SplatMaster. 

     The JT SplatMaster to me was a mix of a paintball gun and kind of like a water ball gun.  This is designed and marketed for children, I guess mainly boys, from ages 9 - 12, however I am 36 and female but I had a blast.  I don't like the idea of paintball because, well it hurts.  They leave huge bruises on you and you know you played for weeks on in.  With the JT SplatMaster the paint ball's don't hurt, they bust much more like a water balloon, a plus for weaklings like me, lol.
     I enjoy looking around for the newest toys coming out this year and thinking which one of my children would enjoy this one or maybe oh I would love this.

     When we tried out the JT SplatMaster we included the entire family is the try out.  All but the 4 year old enjoyed playing with ole JT, that is what we call it.  She had a hard time with the pump and it is a little too big for her, however again I reiterate that this was designed for ages 9 and up.  We got outside in the freezing cold to me and warmed up playing with this paintgun.

     Is this the right toy for you and your family this year?  That would depend on the age of your kids and their capabilities.  I also feel that what a child is interested in is a major concern of interest.  If a child doesn't enjoy the toy they will not play with it. For the most part I would say that for a boy once he is big enough to pump the handle and old enough to understand the rules of not shooting Mommy's house and car I would HIGHLY recommend.  I even have to go over the rules with my hubby at times, so we can't expect much out of the kids.

     For a limited time only, if you purchase a T SplatMaster Z100 or Z200 you will receive a pack of ammo for free.  You can purchase these from Walmart.  You can purchase anything from the guns, ammo, targets, or apparel.  I am also understanding that some of the paint gun stores are also beginning to carry these cuties but I can not guarantee.  They are also not available in Canada yet but they are hoping to get them there real soon. 

     I have one to give away to one of my LUCKY readers to win.  You must be 18 years old or older to qualify and all mandatory entries must be done first before you can do any of the others.  I wish you the best of luck and share this with your friends, It is a GREAT Christmas gift!
